Crunching numbers

In the thirteen days since the month of August began, officially kicking off what is known at my house as “crochet season,” I have begun work on the crochet cookies I will need for this year’s entry: Cookieghan 2.0), and recently I decided that I had better start crunching numbers

The cookies have been accumulating in bags, on surfaces, and under my son’s important papers for school (which starts shortly, so when I finally got to the crochet part of my day, I decided that the first order of business was to finish work on the partially completed cookies that littered my purse, my kitchen and my living room.

Several hours later, I had written comprehensive directions for two of the cookies, woven in any number of ends of cookies that were nearly done, and crocheted these seven small cookies in their entirety:

as well as the cookie portion of two large frosted oatmeal cookies-to-be:

By sunset of the 477 cookies needed for this project, I had completed nine (of 36) medium crochet cookies:

twelve (of 49) large crochet cookies:

A dozen large crochet cookies

and 49 (of 392) small crochet cookies:

When I wake up tomorrow morning, there will be just sixty-two days and 355 cookies between me and the deadline for the North Carolina State Fair.

  1. Excuse me for saying so, but YOU’RE NUTS! I, of course, mean that in a good, complimentary crochetcentric way. The Cookie That Ate Stahlhut- that’s the movie you’re in!

  2. I don’t think you’re nuts at all… you’re just determined and that’s a good thing. I’m kinda hungry after looking at those cookies. Maybe tomorrow I’ll bake something. Who knows, maybe I’ll win the lottery too! LOL

  3. No cookies here: just freshly baked bread and a batch of Peach Jam with Cinnamon, Vanilla and Cardamon!!!
    Everything cookie related is being directed into Pure Crochet Mojo and sent in your direction!

  4. I can’t wait to see the finished product!
    I also wish I had your energy, creativity and drive.
    You’re amazing!
    Your crochet quilts are absolutely beautiful!
